- YouTube Data API v3.
- Twitter API v2.
- Reddit API.
- Patreon API.
Additionally, for data from non-social media tools such as random name generators or word generators, it is directly stored or created by our server.
What data do we store?
For giveaways or raffles conducted with our tools, we will store the following information. The specific details we might store (depending on the tool used) include:
- Information about the winner (name, profile link, and picture).
- Information about the giveaway post (ID and link of post).
- Information about the giveaway owner (ID, name and link of owner)
- Information about the raffle (number of entries, date of draw).
For free users, this data is only stored if the user decides to store the result by utilizing the share buttons or copy link button. Their results of giveaways and raffles are stored on our server for a minimum of 3 months. Access to the results is only possible through the unique link obtained by using the share or copy buttons.
For Premium users, results are automatically stored to their Premium account. Premium users can view or manage results of raffles via their personal dashboard. The dashboard is only accessible with an active Premium subscription.
We do not store the names of participants or any other personal data on our server. If you choose to not store the result of your giveaway as free user and close your browser, the data will be permanently deleted. Retrieving this data will not be possible, so it's important to store the result if desired.
When you log in to our tool using your social media accounts (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Reddit), certain information will be stored in your browser. This enables automatic login on subsequent tool access, eliminating the need for additional authentication. You can remove this stored information by clearing your browser data, cookies, and removing our app from Facebook, Twitter, or Reddit.
We may also store non-personal data in your browser via cookies, session data, or local storage to enhance the user experience or manage specific limits and features of our tools. This can be deleted by clearing your browser data.

- Account information: Name, E-mail, Patreon User ID and Profile Image.
- Membership information: Membership status, start date, last charge date and status.
- Access and Refresh Tokens: To maintain an active session and refresh it as necessary.
This data is exclusively used to verify the status of your Premium membership and store results to your Premium account.

The Comment Picker app has undergone a review and approval process by Facebook, enabling it to use specific permissions for retrieving data.

By using any of our YouTube Tools, you agree to abide by the YouTube Terms of Service. We strongly recommend reading and familiarizing yourself with these terms before using our tools.

How random & fair are the tools?
We operate over 75 different tools, with many of them incorporating randomness. Ensuring fairness is our top priority, as running a business like ours relies on trust in the equitable conduct of raffles and similar activities.
It is important to note that the results of our tools cannot be manipulated. We employ two different methods for randomness:
- mt_rand(): This server-side method employs PHP to generate randomness. Similar to the client-side method, it helps maintain fairness by ensuring we have no control over the raffle results.
For most tools, randomness is implemented on the client side, meaning it is executed within your browser without our server's involvement. Rest assured that we strive to maintain transparency and fairness throughout all our tools.
